Freddie Roach has blasted Amir Khan’s performance against Chris Algieri and has insisted that the Brit will never get a clash with Floyd Mayweather based on that.

Khan claimed a unanimous points win over Algieri in Brooklyn last month to move to 31-3, before again calling out Mayweather who is expected to fight for the last time on September 12.
The unbeaten superstar is currently assessing his options, and while Khan suggests that a fight could be announced in the next two weeks, it will undoubtedly be confirmed on Mayweather’s terms when he is ready.
While the likes of Juan Manuel Marquez and Miguel Cotto are expected to be in the mix for the American’s last bout, Khan is still adamant that he is the front-runner in the race to land his dream fight.
However, Roach was slammed his last display and insisted that it would have done nothing to get Mayweather’s attention given how poor the clash was.
“He’ll never get Mayweather off that performance. He was terrible. It was boring,” Roach said, Boxing Scene reports.
The 28-year-old conceded that he wasn’t at his best on the night and suggested that things hadn’t gone right with trainer Virgil Hunter’s schedule for him as he felt over-trained and flat.
While he hinted at taking more control in his preparations next time, Khan added that it was good that he could learn from his mistakes now before a big fight against the likes of Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao.
The British star continues to dismiss the possibility of a domestic showdown with IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, and so he will be anxiously waiting for his phone to ring in the coming weeks to find out if Mayweather wants the fight or not.
